    Karinga

    Interesting sub munition for an Australian dispenser. I cannot find any live ordnance in service by the Australian airforce. Any one any info?

    I've got a couple, plus some photos of some with the original markings which I took while with AU AF EOD near Sydney. I've also got a photo someplace of the dispenser. AU EOD had no data on it, it apparently it never saw much, if any service. There used to be one page on it in the general ID books in the US EOD pubs, but just appearance and measurements. I believe yours is a repaint.

    Here is some of the stuff from down under. This is original markings for the inert fill, live was in a sort of off-red/maroon, same markings and band width, instead of inert, marked RDX.

    I'm just glad somebody is still interested in the munitions side of the house.
